Established in 1983 as a catalogue label, and now under the creative direction of Jenna Lyons, J. Crew has become one of America’s most successful fashion labels. Happily the US export has brought with it American-style customer service: the staff are ultra-attentive and beam when they serve you. Go here for luxurious wardrobe basics for men, women and kids from cashmere knits to neat blazers.
J.Crew is number 26 in our list of the 100 best shops in London.
